The same scenario played out few weeks to the 2015 general elections which eventually led to the postponement of the poll so as to allow the military make a last push against the Bono Haram sect who were then occupying almost the entire Local Government Areas in Borno and some part of Adamawa and Yobe states.

A source said the meeting was called to update the governors on the security situation in the country ahead of the general elections.

It was also gathered that the NSA intends to present to the governors the security arrangement with the aim of ensuring their support.

A communique is expected to be released at the end of the meeting.
